Contact Gallery

Warm colors of sherbet melt against cool lavender shadows and green oaks, in this oil painting of California wine country. The impressionistic brush strokes capture the lively color of the outdoors with thick, impasto texture. Each brush stroke is loosely applied, bringing to life a memory of beauty.

This painting was done on 1-1/2" deep canvas, with the painting continued around the edges of the canvas.
